So much to do in so little time!
Explore the Rivers & Waterfalls
Finca Bellavista is blessed with miles of rivers. Opportunities to explore the many natural pools and waterfalls are seemingly endless! Rio Bellavista is a great spot to find pretty rocks and fossils, especially after rainstorms. During dry season, snorkeling the river’s crystal clear pools is also possible and offers a unique experience.
Finca Bellavista offers a unique opportunity to watch and study Costa Rica’s avifauna in a natural, relatively quiet and undisturbed setting. Each morning you will wake up to the soothing sounds of hundreds of species of birds as life in the rainforest canopy begins a fresh new day. A treehouse is the perfect perch for birdwatchers…Those that don’t consider themselves birders just might after a visit to the rainforest canopy!
Finca Bellavista has several marked hiking trails that access different portions of the property and provide a great way to get ‘face-to-face’ with nature.
Night hikes are the best times to spot reptiles, amphibians and nocturnal creatures that are out and about in the cooler weather. Our local guide offers night hikes.
Finca Bellavista’s private zipline network is available to owners and overnight visitors only. Introduction to and use of the community’s private SKYTrail network of ziplines and platforms is contingent on employee and equipment availability. Children under the age of 12 or 48 inches are prohibited at this time.
Exploring the colorful, edible gardens of Finca Bellavista has become a favorite activity for our guests. We offer garden tours with our local gardeners, where guests can harvest their own food and learn about the various items and methods of our *Finca Fresh* lifestyle.
Opportunities abound for the amateur or professional artist! Whether you are a photographer, painter or writer, Finca Bellavista’s vibe and various backdrops might inspire you. A striking variety of options await those interested in recording the finca’s avifauna, insects, moths, butterflies, flowers, trees, and scenic wonders. The color, composition, and clarity of subject matter can be overwhelming, but very rewarding!
Unplug and RELAX!!!
Enjoy your ability to be disconnected from the outside world. This seems to be a relatively foreign concept to many of our visitors! Kick back in a hammock, lay out by the river, skinny dip, stretch, write in a journal… read. The birds and bugs won’t mind if you take a few minutes or an afternoon to do the things we normally don’t get a chance to do! The community center’s open-air rancho is a great spot to take in a yoga session. With a scenic backdrop of the Fila Cruces mountains and an occasional breeze, it can be a peaceful place to meditate as well.
For explorers, there are plenty of nearby activities for those with an adventurous spirit! Mangrove tours, surfing, National Parks and fishing excursions are a few of the nearby activities that our staff can arrange for your visit.
